Curling Bird of Paradise


Judy.yarbrough added on January 26, 2017 | Answered

I put an asparagus fern in the pot with the bird of paradise. The leaves have been curled now for a while along with the stem drooping. I read where the pot should go in a bigger pot. I just transferred and saw the fern roots have taken over. Most likely sucking out the life of the bird. Will the leaves now stop curling and not droop or is it too late? Thank you

Yes, when planting multiple plants in a container you will need to allow the room for the roots and additional soil. Make sure you use a good quality potting soil and that the container has good drainage.

Inspect the plant for pests, as this could also cause curling of leaves.

Likely the plant is suffering some transplant shock and will recover with time and care.
